Acting and Dialogue: C: A lot of the dialogue is raunchy and dirty out of this comes humor especially for the guys in the crowd. I say this because a lot of what Gerard Butler’s character believes in is truly how a large amount guys feel about woman.
Art Direction: C: Common city streets and new studio
Cinematography: C: Nothing that impressing
Direction: B-: For new director Robert Luketic put out a Romcom 101 movie which isn’t good…there is a scene that mirrors When Harry Meet Sally
Sound and Music: C: Pop hits, not impressing
VFX: D: When FX was used you knew it was a green screen shot.
Overall: C: When you add up all the elements the film his horrible, but from an entertaining factor it decent or Okay status. Being a Romcom it is better scene with a date.
